A president and The Boss in Parma, Ohio

  • Getting ready in Ohio
    When you're preparing for an event that includes President Bill Clinton and Bruce Springsteen—like today's concert at Cuyahoga Community College, or "Tri-C," in Ohio—you don't have to put too much effort into spreading the word.
    "When I got to the office the morning after details of the event were announced, there was already a huge line around the block," says Vanessa, a volunteer coordinator for Cuyahoga County. "People were blasting Bruce's music on boomboxes and there were news crews, and lots of excitement in the air. By 10:00 a.m. we had a line about three blocks long and it just never died down—people were coming by for tickets until 9:00 p.m. that night."
